A study I did today in my studio, in honor of last night's robin dream. I'm starting to sketch out ideas for the piece I will be exhibiting in a gallery window in Portland for the month of May. I'm looking at my dream journals and at illuminated medieval manuscripts. This drawing is a little bit about that game we played with our hands as kids (here is the church, here is the steeple) and about prayer. It speaks about the hands literally being the church (body as temple) and my spiritual connection to nature through my body and my senses.
